Pam Grout, #1 NY Times bestselling author of 18 books had this to say about Ancient Prayer: “Rachel Weingarten has found ancient prayers for everything–from cats and blossoming fruit trees to what to pray when you see a hot guy. She even uncovered a prayer from 13th century Catholic priest Thomas Aquinas for writers, one I will now be using with great relish. Thanks, Rachel, for reminding us of the importance of prayer and of our ongoing communication with the big mystery.”
